This page and the next both concern themselves with a long day I spent hiking through towns downstream from Langnau. I took the train to Emmenmatt to start out.
Gallery: June 16 — Emmenmatt, Lauperswil
A house uphill from the Emmenmatt station, with a sort of strange quality, mostly, I think, because of the ruddy, glossy finish of its walls.
A lovely little diverse patch of flowers near the station.
Double eave! I'm not totally sure what the story is here.
A cool covered walkway in a construction yard.
Compound bracket eave with a whole lot of stuff stored within, which was surprisingly unusual.
Lean-to, also rather unusual for the area.
Cheesery: watch out!
This ramp is pretty great because of the way it rises up out of the land and also because you can see clear through the barn.
Wide-open country on the way to Lauperswil.
Modern concrete ramp.
An unusual unsloped dormer-like ramp.
Huge open-roofed Bauernhof.
Roof tile details.
A lovely carriageway for a hotel in Lauperswil.
Another six-story Bauernhof. Intense!
A complex with two splayed projecting wings: just one more unusual sight from the day.
